Built with 90″ uprights at the back of the unit and 100″ uprights in the front, the Rogue Monster Collegiate Half Rack utilizes new angled crossmembers to produce a finished look at the top of the rack with added height in front for pull-ups. We’ve also included longer 30″ front feet, which provide additional stabilization and allow athletes to perform band work without having to be inside the rack itself.Manufacturer: Rogue FitnessCategory: Power Racks
Pros & Cons
What we like about the product...
- The Rogue Monster Collegiate Half Rack takes the same build quality and features of the traditional Monster Series and shapes it into a Half Rack.
- Utilizes 3"x3" uprights with circle holes on the front and back of the uprights and keyholes on the sides.
- Uprights have laser-cut hole numbers.
- The front of the rack uses angled feet that increase stability and allow for banded lifts while remaining open.
- Due to the racks design and weight, it doesn't have to be bolted down making it ideal for home gyms that don't want to drill into their foundation.
- Comes standard with a laser-cut Rogue nameplate in red which can be customized for an upcharge. Also, a straight pull-up bar with the standard textured powder-coat and 1" hardware come standard.
- A ton of upgrade options for pull-up bars, j-cups, and various attachments.
- 8 plate storage posts and 4 band pegs come with the rack.
- Design allows you to combine two racks back to back that is great for a University weight room.
What needs improvement...
- This is one of the most expensive half racks on the market, so although it's great quality, there are more affordable options.
- Monster Safety Spotter Arms 2.0 are an additional charge that, to be honest, are pretty much a necessity if you ever plan to bench out of the rack. Factor this in when purchasing.
- No color options available for the rack like their other Monster Series.
